I began teaching in 1984 at the high school in Elberton. After one year, I made the transition to Elbert County Middle School and remained there in seventh grade Language Arts for 28 years. I am also a mentor and substitute teacher at Mountain Ed. Charter School in Bowman, GA.


I am from Elberton, GA.

I have been married for 30 years to Dennis Blackmon, and we have three children: Hunter is 23 and a policeman in Clarke County, Paige is a rising sophomore at GA College in Milledgeville, where she is majoring in nursing, and Mia is 13, and in the eighth grade.

I am an avid animal lover. I have four dogs and a cat. I also love to read and scrapbook in my spare time. 

We are members of Bethel E Baptist Church in Elberton.

I have one sister and one brother. All three of us are teachers, and our mother was a parapro in Elbert County for many years.
